Welcome to Florida
Musculoskeletal Institute

The caring, board certified doctors of FMI are specialists dedicated to treating joint, muscle and bone pain anywhere it strikes. Even though we are a team of renowned surgeons, the majority of our treatments don't involve surgery. When surgery is warranted, it's good to know that we perform the latest proven procedures, including total joint replacement, joint repair and modification, gender-specific knee replacement and more. FMI's orthopaedic surgeons are among the few designated to perform total joint replacement surgeries right here at The Villages Regional Hospital. It feels good to know that you're in the qualified hands of a local doctor with local affiliations.

Whether your condition is new or chronic, FMI utilizes safe, proven treatments - never questionable trends - to help you overcome pain and get back to a healthier, happier life.

"In my youth I played lots of sports. I also wore pointy-toed shoes. When I found out I had arthritis I stopped playing tennis but continued to walk daily and exercise at least three times a week. But the shoes and sports gave me bunions and hammertoes that got progressively more painful. I asked Dr. Ollivierre, who performed my knee surgery, who he'd send his mother to if she needed a podiatrist and he said Dr. Watkins. I liked Dr. Watkins right away. He removed my bunions and fixed my hammertoes with implants. Now I can do everything, including sports, without pain."
